Chicken Biryani

We got very excited today because – briefly – our Instagram account hit 100 followers for the first time. Perhaps not a big milestone in the grand scheme of things, but we were very pleased! It’s fallen back down to 98 at the time of writing… but we’re not too upset because we’ve just eaten some lovely Chicken Biryani! This recipe comes from Nigel Slater’s ever reliable The 30-Minute Cook.

He’d be the first to tell you that this isn’t an authentic recipe, but it’s really easy to make and produces a hearty and satisfying meal. You need to make sure your store-cupboard is well stocked with all the required spices (ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric, cinnamon, chilli and nutmeg) but the end result is worth it.
